THE MOST DEADLY QUESTION FOR GRACE
Posted by Mike Foster: There is a question that tragically kills grace every single day.
It is this pathetic question: WHAT WILL PEOPLE THINK?
Sadly these 4 dirty words dictate so much of our grace giving and receiving.
What will people think if I take my cheating husband back?
What will people think if I have dinner with that pastor that just came out of the closet?
What will people think if I forgive the a-hole that took advantage of me?
What will people think if move on from my mistakes and find happiness again?
What will people think if I admit I'm addicted to pain killers?
What will people think if I walk down the aisle of a church and surrender my life to God?
These questions kill grace. So don't ask them.
Silence the voices of doubt and criticism. Have the courage to stop listening to the peanut gallery (and even yourself.)
Boldly engage second chances and stop asking stupid questions.
